STERLING RUBY’S TRAINS AT NIGHT GALLERY

TRAINSTRAINS

Night Gallery

THE EXHIBITION WILL BE LAID OUT IN LINES. THE EXHIBITION WILL BE HUNG IN

SEQUENCES BREAKING CHRONOLOGY. THE EXHIBITION WILL BE FORMAL, BUT NOT

JUST SHAPES. PHOTOGRAPHY AND SCULPTURE ARE NOT THE SAME THING, BUT

THEY ARE COMPANIONS. SOME CHOOSE MORE, SOME CHOOSE LESS, EVERYONE

HAS TO HAVE AT LEAST TWO, AND THE BOUNDARIES ARE DERAILED.

PHOTOGRAPHY: NOBUYOSHI ARAKI, SARAH CONAWAY, RICHARD HAWKINS, MARCEL

ALCALÁ, ANNETTE KELM, MELANIE SCHIFF. SCULPTURE: THEA DJORDJADZE, ERIK

FRYDENBORG, PIERO GOLIA, JEFF ONO, AUGUSTUS THOMPSON, BRENNA

YOUNGBLOOD.

MOTIVE POWER, PULL YOUR WEIGHT, WHEN WILL THIS TRAIN EVER END, THE

PASSENGERS, THE UNDERGROUND, BLOCKING THE VARNISH, NIGHT TRAIN

EXPRESS, SPATIALLY SEPARATED IMAGES AND OBJECTS OCCUR AT THE SAME TIME

BECOMING LINKED BY THE OBSERVER, TRAIN AND PLATFORM EXPERIMENTS, WHEN

& WHERE EVENTS OCCUR WHEN YOU WERE NOT PRESENT, THE LOCOMOTIVE, THE

CHAIN, THE CABOOSE, THE TROLLEY PROBLEM, THE O TRAIN, THE REAPER RIPS

OVER THE TRACKS AND NOW EVERYTHING IS COVERED IN PISS.
